    Gavin vs. Evan

    What do you prefer between Gavin and Evan?

    They are both very similar sounding, but while the hubs loves Evan he isn't down with Gavin.

    What are your opinions?

    Our last name ends in "vich" so I think a first name with a "v" to mirror it would sound fantastic.

    Evan definitely gets my vote, Gavin is so dated.

    Much prefer Evan. The nickname Gav really throws me.

    If you want a V name that's a bit unusual, have you thought of Evren? It means "cosmos, universe."

    Gavin! I love, love, love Gavin. I met an adorable, hilarious little Gavin at work today, too, which made me appreciate it even more. Evan's a nice name, I just love Gavin more by a mile. I feel like I should love Evan, since it's the Welsh form of my dad and brother's name, but I just like Gavin so much more.
